Re: excessive drooling
Bad teeth can cause other health problems, including elevated kidney levels and compromised immune systems.
If that's what's wrong, it's a fairly easy fix. A day at the vet's, a cleaning, a few pulled teeth, and she'll be feeling like a kitten again.
If she's missing some teeth, that can lead to the drooling as well. My girl cat's missing a canine. She drools everywhere, although she's particularly fond of drooling on the computer, esp. when I'm scratching her chin.
